Sled down Libe Slope during a snowstorm: Cornell is known for it’s amount of snow (we’re no Buffalo, but we’re also no Florida!) Ithaca’s weather is locally mocked with the phrase, “Shithaca.” There’s a reason for this term–it’s the level of unwanted and uncalled for snow.“All we need is love” is what the Beatles were trying to convey to us over many years through their most famous song.Despite the fact that love does have a controlling power over our lives and decisions, this state of mind is not that easy to achieve; but those who do, can enjoy the beauty of sharing their live with a significant other.
Steal a lunch tray, use an old binder (or a current one for that class you just absolutely despise), grab your macbook, basically grab anything remotely related to a snow sled, and risk your life sledding down that nearly 50 degree slow in the nearly 0 degree weather. Do something in the stacks: On the sixth floor of Olin Library’s stacks lies a wall that divides the study tables from the other half of the book shelves.But, let’s step away from those philosophical talks full of nonsense and truth, and look at the dating culture in the great lands of America.But before I share how drastically different American dating scene is for me, let me tell you a little bit about myself.Polina Durneva from Russia studying at Cornell College shares her views about how dating in the United States is different than back in her home country of Russia.As part of our microscholarship program we asked current international students what their observations have been about dating in the United States and how it compares to dating back in their home countries.
